Club Builder Award


At the January board meeting the Board approved the Club Builder Award. This new award honors those Rotarians who have made a significant impact in supporting and strengthening their Rotary Clubs, and fits in well with the goal of creating Bigger, Better, Bolder clubs.

District Governors may nominate one candidate from their districts each year. To be eligible a Rotarian must have be active and in good standing, with at least 10 years of membership, they must have served as a club president, and have been a member of a Rotary club with at least 30 members in the 3 years immediately preceding nomination.

The specific criteria for the award are as follows:
  1. Personally recruited at least five members who are active Rotarians at the time of nomination
  2. Participated in Rotary training in their club
  3. Participated in at least one meaningful club-level vocational service project
  4. Attended at least two district meetings in the three years immediately preceding nomination
Eligible candidates must be recommended by three past club presidents of their own club (or of a past club if they are members of a new club). District governors should form a selection committee of three past governors to select the district nominee. The district governor may endorse one candidate and must submit a nomination to Rotary International by 1 November.

Information regarding the Club Builder Award has been sent to the district governors, and the nomination form is available online at www.rotary.org/awards
